I have been Daves hair Dresser for the past few years. When he didn’t show up to his past appt in August I worried. Im so sad to see this. Dave may of been losing his shortterm but his long term was always there. I used to always remind him how awesome it is to know somethings so long ago when he couldnt recall something recent or would forget between sentences. He was so sweet. Always asking about my son. He was a great client and a good friend. His face always brought me joy. Wishing him eternal peace. God bless!

Dave was a great friend of mine for 50+ years. He loved people! I treasure the time we spent in various member-guest golf tournaments that we played in. I was always concerned with how we were doing competitively ... were we leading our flight? ... could we make the finals? Dave only wanted to know how our competitors felt ... what did they do ... where did they come from ... how did they get here? While our competitive record ... both at Raintree and at St James ... Was pretty good - (we made the finals three times) - I was most impressed with how our competition always flocked to Dave at the end of the tournament and traded stories and jokes with him. He connected on so many levels with all that he came in contact with ... and he made friends so easily. We will all miss his positive attitude and his zest for life. And his smile!
